What Would Jesus Tweet? (WWJT)

As you have probably heard by now, everybody and their brother is now on Twitter. Athletes, movie stars, politicians, and even Oprah are now on Twitter, as well as everyday Americans like my friend Crotchety from Crotchety Old Man Yells at Cars and Kathy from the Junk Drawer Blog. They've been pestering me as to when I was going to get signed up so they could follow me during my day and see what's it like to be the MA Fat Woman.

I mean who doesn't want to know when I'm washing myself and a load of clothes? The World Wide Web is anxiously waiting for the Tweet that says "I shouldn't of had that extra helping of beans or broccoli" or "My mom announcing that we are going to have another yard sale." (Which we had this weekend, BTW.)

All of this leads me to the biggest question of all: What would Jesus Tweet? (WWJT)

Would he tell us to straighten up and fly right?

Would he tell us to stop being so mean to one another?

Would he tell us to stop spending so much money?

Would he tell us to spend more money?

Would he tell us to help out someone in need without wondering what was in it for them?


Would he tell us that he just fed the starving masses around the world with a break through new technology?

Would he tell us to start preserving our resources better?

Would he tell us to pay more attention to the elderly people because they have lots to share?

Would he tell us that he's amazed at the technology behind Twitter but wonders why people are so desperate, desolate and down and out?

What would Jesus Tweet? I don't think it could be summed up in 140 characters or less, do you?

Four letters: LOVE.

He would say this for starters: “Love, Honor, and respect each other. Be good to each other and be kind and considerate of others. He would also say help each other. Treat others as you want to be treated.”

Dunno. But I pestered Joe to get on twitter and yet I still don't hear from him much!

Da Old Man said...

Twitter is pretty silly, so far.

Just sayin'.

I'm sure he'd say get the hell off Twitter and go live life. Well, he wouldn't say "hell," you know, 'cuz he's Jesus.

Me? I'm still on Twitter, but try to limit myself (please ignore the flurry of tweets I made tonight. I'm on a diet and my Google feeds weren't working, so I had to tell everyone and seek sympathy). But other than that...
